Information for Recruitment agencies

The Careers Service deals with private agencies or third parties representing employers only where:

  • an employer has commissioned the agency to act on their behalf and the agency states which employer it represents, provides information about, and selects only for the named employer.
  • the Careers Service is satisfied that such representation is clearly in the interests of students and of the University.

Please note that:

  • the employer must be named in the vacancy entry and displayed to students
  • salary information should be provided and is not commission based/commission element
  • the only web link we will include will be to the employer's own site
  • should you wish to use our shared vacancies service the above principles are applied in all University Careers Services and only vacancies that comply will be released to our websites.

The same principles are applied to the many commercial organisations offering agency-type services on the Internet, and therefore, like commercial employment agencies, these do not normally receive publicity, have links on our website or participate in Careers Fairs or other Careers Service activities.

Some agencies have claimed, or hinted at having, an association with the Careers Centre. As a matter of principle we do not endorse or support any particular commercial agency.

Any enquiries should be addressed to the Director of the Careers Centre (
